Typical diner, went for breakfast. I don't know what all the hype is about this place. The service was good but the food was just ok at best.

While doing a road trip through Tennessee and Alabama we like to stop for local cooking instead of chains. This place was perfect. Friendly local staff and authentic southern food. Tonight we went for fried chicken and catfish. The blue plate specials are a great value. Be sure to get the dessert of the day as one of your sides!

We have visited the new location on South Parkway often, since it is in our neighborhood. Love being able to pop in for a plate of vegetables, or a full meal, or even quick lite meal. The price is good, and plenty of food. The restaurant is much larger than I originally realized. Great place for a group.

I've gotten take out meals for my mom several times from BPC, had one or two work functions at lunchtime here, and today I had breakfast for the first time. The breakfast was really good and sitting at the counter (bar?) was comfy and efficient since I was on a tight time schedule. The waitress was sweet as pie, notifying... More

An old fashioned southern diner, serving up good old fashioned meals, at a great price. Heaping plates of pork chops, meatloaf or my favorite chicken fried steak. Unique. Friendly staff.

This new (opened in June 2015) provides the same great comfort food as does the Governors Drive location. The service is wonderful and the atmosphere is pleasant and is more open than the Governors Drive restaurant. Not yet open for breakfast and I and my family will be there when it does open for breakfast!
